Zero Down update!!!

Post by pox1169 »

Condensed version....

Matt Fox (Bitter End, Dr. Unknown, Holy Terror) is the new lead guitar player for Zero Down.

Long version....

The ending of one year and the beginning of another. The Year of the Ox is upon us and there has already has been an ending and beginning for ZERO DOWN.

In The End…After five years of wielding his axe in ZD, our brother ..Fred Speakman.. has decided to move on and do some other musical projects that we’re sure will kick ass!

There’s no denying the great times we experienced and the great music we made while Fred was in the band and as one of our brothers we wish him nothing but the best!

In The Beginning…It’s always weird going through a member change when you’ve had a solid line up for a long period of time….But at the same time it can be really exciting and bring a new spark to a band that may be getting a little too comfortable. Most importantly, it’s has to be the right person.
.. ..
Well we didn’t have to look very far to find the next guitar madman to join the fold. Right next door in fact…ha..ha…at our rehearsal space. Enter Matt Fox (Bitter End, Dr. Unknown, Holy Terror)! Matt has been a friend of ours forever and is one of the true bona fide staples of the Seattle Metal/Rock Scene and we’re super excited to have him in the band! So raise up some of those devil horns for our new brother!
.. ..
We can hardly wait to get the oldies but goodies down and get two or three new smokin hot cuts down to show all you people the rock goodness we have ready for 2009!

You’ll start seeing some new dates at the end of March/beginning of April. So lookout as Dio would say!
.. ..
Two quick shout outs to John Richards at Classic Rock Magazine and Sorn at http://www.metalthai.com.
.. ..
John has really been trying to spread the word in the ....UK.... about us and we can’t thank him enough. When you’re a DIY band and some one like that takes their own time to push it out there for you, it makes you remember why you feel in love with the underground metal/rock scene to begin with and that there are still super cool people out there that are in it for the right reasons!
..
Finally to Sorn in ....Thailand..... Devil Horns Way Up for showing myself and Ed “The Fireman” a great time in ....Bangkok.... and all the great press you have given the band on your site! Friends for life!
. ..
Less talk more rock my fellow sinners! See you out there soon!

I agree. Congrats w/ Matt, but I always had a blast playing with Fred, and I found it eery how much the guy looked like Eden from Evolution Studios. :smoke:

Glad to see ZD still alive and going strong!!

I have mine right here... cut off sleeves and shrunk down to a size "how the hell did this get so small" from so many washings over the years.
